Kink and Poly Aware Chicago Therapists (KPACT) is a resource-sharing and discussion group for therapists who acknowledge and celebrate sexual and gender diversity as well as alternative relationship constellations.
KPACT is for therapists and other helping professionals interested in learning how to work deeply and effectively with clients engaged in or exploring alternative expressions of their sexuality, erotic orientation, or relationships. We are sex-positive, LGBTQIA-friendly, and dedicated to becoming knowledgeable and aware psychotherapists serving the kink and poly communities.
We seek to reduce stigma regarding kink and polyamory while increasing the cultural competence of therapists who work with these marginalized populations. Through collaborative dialogue, education, networking and research, we hope to create an environment in which every client can find a therapist with whom they feel safe, respected, and heard.
